How to print tracing paper in Docucolor 5000

Hi there,
I have try printing tracing paper in this machine but it always jam in area 3b. I think it it's because tracing papers are very slippery thus rollers cant grip it firmly. Any ideas or tips on how to overcome this? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Heya!

 

It is not recommended to print on any paper that is less than 60 grams, I guess the tracing paper you use is very thin?

 

Thanks!

No, actually it's a 100 grams tracing paper. I can solve this if I will print in few copies only by attaching and taping a 80 gsm woodfree paper underneath it. But it will be a problem if going to print 100 copies. That would be very troublesome.

Hi again!

 

Should not be a problem.

If you try changing the paper settings to transparent paper, will that help?

 

Thanks!

Hi Kimzi,
Thank you! It did work changing to transparent paper setting. However the setting only allows for A4 & letter sizes. What if my papers are in SRA3 size? Any way of doing it?

Hey

 

Glad it worked!


According to this document, page 67, it seems that the option is only for A4 & Letter.

Sorry, but this machine may not take SRA3 Transparent.

 

Thanks!
